  1. Thanks Shemanski... great link, should have spotted myself! I've duly read through all the 1.8 reviews and some of the 1.6 reviews too! Any enthusiasts care to give me any pointers to look out for... known weaknesses or typical wear and tear to be wary of?
  2. I'm seriously considering buying a T Sport after the other half bought a 1.6 on a 53 plate recently. Probably looking for one of similar age. Anything I should look out for in particular when shopping around or during a test drive. Any advice would be much appreciated. I'll post pictures if I get one!
  3. Does anyone know if there is a comprehensive guide to the Corolla model numbers and changes made over the years?
  4. Steven, Thanks for the advice - at least now I know what people are talking about when they say prefacelift and E12 ! Does anyone know if there is a guide to the Corolla model numbers and changes made? I'll have a look for that spoiler :) It's actually the cap from the washer bottle in the engine bay that's missing, the jets work fine but probably need a little gunge cleaning out of them to make them perfect. So any prefacelift E12 owners care to share some more advice following on from these posts, would be much appreciated.
  5. Where did you get your spoilers from and were they an easy fit - I'm particularly interested in getting one for the rear just to give my 1.6VVTi (53 plate) a little sportiness! I think the colour is Igneous Metallic Grey - I'm going to put some pics up soon.
  6. I'm sure that soon we will have CCTV connected to vibration sensors built in to cars so we can catch these idiots. The technology is out there already and relatively inexpensive to run and record to. Once a few people have it, the majority will either be more careful in future or less reluctant to drive off! To start with, someone should make a "Vehicle CCTV in use" sticker!!! Just my two pennies!
  7. Thanks. Have posted there now. http://www.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=138767
  8. Hi all... new member here. Hello! Just bought a 53 plate (09/2003) 1.6 VVT-i T3 in Metallic Grey with 107k on the clock. Very tidy example on the face of things. Does this car have a different reference number, I've seen people refer to E12 and numbers such as that? It has a fairly good service history. Any things we should look out for? We'd like to put the little spoiler above the rear window and it looks like the screen wash filler cap is missing so any tips for that too will be much appreciated. Strangely it has rear parking sensors but I think they are aftermarket or are they factory fitted? Anyway any guidance or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
